Show Summary Details


We present J-band photometric observations of eight late-L and T type brown dwarfs designed to search for variability. We detect small amplitude periodic variability from three of the objects on time-scales of several hours, probably indicating the rotation period of the objects. The other targets do not show any variability down to the level of 0.5–5 per cent

Keywords: techniques: photometric; stars: low-mass, brown dwarfs
